I have been gone for a few months. I landed a really good job to advance my career. The only thing I’m grateful for is my team for giving me the knowledge and experience I am now using in my current position. Other than that, everything else was just... — read more
Realise that this is happening all across the industry, with oil companies putting a green spin on things, but DQ's recent marketing has been comical!
Heard that things are getting busier onwards and upwards bring on the overtime
Going by what’s on here I take it more payoffs to come ?
Prediction came true
I don't know what situation you're in, but I have very little work to do lately. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever had less. Every day is a slow day. Some would say that's great, but I'm starting to get worried if it goes on like this. Looking at my... — read more
The best way to get our people to run faster is to pit them against each other. Rank them against one another - top 20% are the darlings, middle 70% are the worker bees, bottom 10% are the laggards. And if we keep at it year after year, they will... — read more
Still waiting on this so called redundancy letter that's meant to be coming everyone way. Looks like it's a pile of pish.
Been down cuz he stay down. Bend over the booboo and fa-t the stank out. Pride month baby. Meet me in the toilets.
A few years back I wouldn’t believe this company could be like it is today. I admire all the talented people who are still here and tolerate the charlatanry that some have established here as the norm. It seems to me that some people who are “very... — read more
Any news? Is everyone from Aberdeen going?
Does anyone have an annual retrospective of how many people have worked here say 5 years back? It would be interesting to see annual attrition data. My subjective feeling is that so many people have never left voluntarily as they have lately, so... — read more
I dont believe the layoffs are true. Not heard anything but rumours and nothing to back it up with.
Any truth to rumors about possible June layoffs?
I thought earlier that the story of the people employed here without being able to fulfill the job description was a bit exaggerated, until I got a colleague for whom it is by no means clear to me how he got the job here at all. I’m glad for everyone... — read more
Honestly you lot should go start your own companies, you all are obviously so intelligent since you know everything about how this company should operate. Get a grip, every oil company are in the same boat just now. Shut up, get on with your jobs... — read more
Blake knows how much Aberdeen can make he will save them from the bird man who dosent like Aberdeen he sees Aberdeen as a threat. Heard it from the horses mouth. We are 1 company
Coming very soon,maybe as early as summertime
Well done DQ we all knew you were innocent now we can thrive as a company
I think it will just be one or two more trips for us all before we get our redundancy letters.
It should be a movie like Wolf of Wall Street, except we see the Grapemaster making broken promises, lying to all his workers and holding garbage Christmas gathering in the back of a filthy building. It closes with him running the company into the... — read more
So glad I called in from this piece of cr–p job to go see Mortal Kombat today. Time to see blood, guts and bo––y
Catastrophe today in FMC trial. DQ caught covering up theft of FMC IP....more to come.
Why would anyone want to get laid off? I work the bare minimum, I have time for hobbies outside of work, I'm slowly looking at what kind of jobs are offered... It's not ideal here, but I don't intend to be one of those who constantly complain like... — read more
I haven’t heard of anyone here getting laid off for a while now, so I relaxed quite a bit and almost didn’t think about the layoffs anymore. Maybe it's a calm before the storm?
I can't wait to get laid off. It’s become so hard for me to work here that I can’t take it anymore. Motivation is zero. I hope that those who predict the next round in 6–8 weeks are right, because that's about all the patience I have left. Nothing is... — read more
my boss never even discuss or set my objectives
When do you all think we will hear about the next lot of redundancies?
And rescue DQ from mess that VP of engineering created?
Anyone following FMC lawsuit? VP of Engineering made an a-s out of himself on a stand ....
Very often, I have people from the industry coming up to ask me about how’s our company doing? / what’s the EBITA? / why the low morale? / how’s the wine yard? / what’s Dril Quip’s Power of E? To the last question.. I searched high and low for an... — read more
the government has open up returning to work, no more wfh
The issue of staying in this company is ultimately a matter of self respect. That's how it is nowadays. It used to be different and there were better people and a better atmosphere. It is becoming increasingly clear to me that those old times will... — read more
How has the states allowed this guy to ruin the machine shop ? I just don’t understand why BU has made it this long
It is as clear as day what is going on in DQE , The guys that are being kept are purely there to prep as much of the stuff lying around ahead of it being shipped elsewhere , theres emails out on the very day redundancies are being confirmed... — read more
